A dream image representing the albedo, step of alchemy.  Albedo is one of the four major stages of the magnum opus; along with nigredo, citrinitas and rubedo.  Following the chaos of the nigredo stage, the alchemist undertakes a purification in albedo, which is literally referred to as ablutio – the washing away of impurities. See references about albedo

Surrealism pictures are a branch or better the ancestor of photography based digital art. It is an “old” tachnique, started with the darkroom and used by surrealists as Salvador Dalì in some works of photography. The technique is known as photomontage and consistes in mounting more images into one.

This is the second surrealistic picture holding symbolic value. It represents the first step of alchemy, the nigredo or black work. In this step  on the way to the the self awarness and enlightenment the self is distroyed for a rebirth in the second step, the albedo, represented in an other picture. Nigredo is the first step in the pathway to the philosopher’s stone all alchemical ingredients had to be cleansed and cooked extensively to a uniform black matter. See references about black work
